"If. Poem by Rudyard Kipling"
Rudyard Kipling plainly and with great insight describes what masculinity really is, He has a skill at succinctness and plain talking. I printed this poem up and gave it to my son when he was young. He still has the poem.
If is a poem by Kipling giving advice to his son. A classic that was once frowned upon but is now making a comeback.
A beautiful voice with excellent diction
Nothing more to say. I love the poem and always have since i first read it
Loved it. A beautiful poem. I have read it many times but, hearing it so beautifully spoken, is wonderful.
"A sea compressed in a drop of water"
The poems are more powerful than prose. They convey a wisdom of life time in a few lines. The value of this poem can be understood only by a few. I know a man who has lived by memorising this poem to heart.- Haresh Raichura
"Daily Required Listening"
I listen to this every day as part of my daily ritual. Worth every penny.
Michael Caine was great in his reading. Perfect English accent. Just an inspiring poem. Everyone should hear it.
"Kipling & Caine - perfect pairing"
beautiful poem, performed by a narrator who would capture my mind just reading a dictionary of medical terminology.
I would recommend this book to absolutely everyone! The narration was perfect. The words were true. Very uplifting and concise.
Michael Caine does an excellent job reading this poem that all men should learn by heart and tell their sons.
This is a great poem and a great performance by Michael Caine at a good price.
I love this poem anyway - but Michael Caine does add something to the telling. Really lovely!!
"Doesn't Play Through Amazon Echo!!"
Maybe if this is fixed, otherwise no.
Poetry books, as this is what they are.
It could have played, like all the other books I've bought have....
Disappointment at the lack of playability on Amazon Echo...
I'm sure by now you'll see where I'm going with this?
"Excellent reading of my favourite poem"
